I am a lurker who enjoys the endless discussions on film versus video, anyhow I
am also on Media Librarian discussion list and I know some of you have contact
or ties to film archives so I thought I would copy this post over for anyone
who has interest, I am pretty sure the librarian wants to give their 16mm films
to someone who will preserve them, so all of you found footage artist should
probably not bother the poor person but you never know, they will probably be
destroyed if they are not taken, so it is worth a shot...
I have to do some very extreme weeding of our remaining 16mm films. (Losing
their storage space. Space for VHS & DVDs is not effected, fortunately.)
Do you have archives or other places you’d suggest I contact, who might want to
give some reels a new home?
(I’ve sent films to the Chicago Film Archive, Harvard’s, and have a list to go
to David in Rhode Island.)
